Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Bahnfrend!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations").

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Regent Street Bus Cavalcade[edit]

Hello Bahnfrend. I just noticed your photo of Q1 trolleybus - very nice. Did you happen to take any more images of that event? Ultra7 (talk) 18:14, 31 July 2014 (UTC)

No problem, thanks for uploading what you had. I was just concerned you might have taken more but hadn't uploaded them yet for lack of time or info. After a walk like that though, I can fully understand why you didn't - I hope you all had fun anyway, definitely one of those happy coincidences (especially if you like buses and/or have kids to occupy).

Hello! I really liked your photographs a lot! I have a suggestion - It would be great if you crop some photos and upload it separately.

Do you know if the Japanese cultural center (described in http://www.perthwalkabout.com/Arts-Culture/hyogo-prefectural.html) is in a building separate from the Japanese school? I know they are on the same property but I am not sure if they share the same building? I didn't know about the center's existence until now. It's cool that Perth has it!

you're on[edit]

please take a look at my recent edits and the new set of items at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Duplicate - the german photos of part of a building seem to me to be the same - no machine readable for either - it seems one version is not better than the other - any concuring on that?

And as I check them as dupes, the dupe tag/ aspect says that opne has to go, and, when I look - they seem exactly the same - because of my zilch in the language, I wondered if anything on either of the images suggest to you there is anything between the descrips that might offer clues as to how the dupes happened, or not...

New empty categories[edit]

Hello, Bahnfrend. I noticed that you created quite a few categories, including Category:2011 in water transport by country, Category:1927 in rail transport by country, and similar ones, and that many of them are empty. On Commons, we are asked to create categories only when there is something to put into them. Do you have something to put into all these categories? If not, then they can be deleted for now. --Auntof6 (talk) 13:38, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Actually the new categories are not really empty. They're populated with sub-categories that are operated by templates, and unfortunately the templates take a little while to update themselves. If you wait a few days, the templates should all have updated, and from then onwards, the new categories will then be automatically populated, in some cases with quite a lot of sub-categories. Bahnfrend (talk) 13:43, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
OK, thanks. I will check again in a few days. By the way, I moved your reply here to keep the conversation thread together. If you have another reply, you can leave it here and I will see it. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 14:00, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
I've just checked and the templates are still not working yet. I've encountered this problem before - they're sometimes really slow to update the way they operate, and I suspect that it's a bug in the Commons software (there isn't a similar problem on English Wikipedia). As I'm only an editor, not a Wikimedia employee, there isn't really anything I can do about the problem, other than encourage people to be patient - the templates will update automatically in the end. Bahnfrend (talk) 06:49, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Category:Aircraft by year of photographing[edit]

What is your intention for this new category? There is already the category Category:Aircraft by year which seems to do the same thing, but captures all media. Josh (talk) 16:41, 27 September 2017 (UTC)


International trucks[edit]

There is a discussion on this page whether images should be categorised as International trucks or International Harvester trucks.   Not many wikipedia contributors have contributed to the discussion or voted with their preference, but you have contributed to material on International Harvester.   I would be grateful, if you have the time, if you would share your own opinion on the page name.  And thank you. Eddaido (talk) 00:30, 28 September 2017 (UTC)

Overcategorising[edit]

You seem to be quite a serial over-categoriser and I'm not quite sure fo the purpose of some of your new categories. For example, what is the purpose of Category:Oil tankers by country of location‎ and how is it different from Category:Oil tankers by country? Unless you're planning to create Category:Oil tankers by country of origin‎ or something similar (for example), then creating these additional layers simply makes it harder to navigate through the category system. Sionk (talk) 21:43, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

It is far better to create categories that actually have content (more than one or two items) rather than unnecessary additional steps. The purpose of categorisation is to be a finding aid, not to have small numbers of items buried deep in a category chain. Sionk (talk) 18:29, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Please stop creating stupid unnecessary categories such as "Police of Foo" since for example Tasmania Police isn't known as Police of Tasmania. Police of Foo may work in the US where there is a large number of police agencies and departments but in Australia, really? Also redirect template is for redirecting. So just stop creating a mess.
